Omni was alright. Infinity just sucks. Haven't listened to it since the week it released, but can still remember how crappy it was.

Surprised Grado hasn't come up for open cans. I enjoy my SR80s ($100).

Maybe I'm weird, but I can't live without clear, sparkling treble when I listen to music. My Klipsch bookshelf speakers with...

Yeah, W&T just eviscerates their first record, in hindsight. One of the best and most overlooked hard rock records of the decade. Such a shame that their output just stopped immediately after that...

As someone who considers myself liberal for the most part, I often forget this. This #CancelColbert horseshit has been sufficient to make me not forget again for a long time. (Not saying it's all...

I guess that depends on whether you were blown away by the first record you heard by any given band. If you had some kind of epiphany or spiritual moment, that might bias you even if some of their...

Coheed all the way. Everything about their image, fanbase, the comic book background, etc. turned me off for years before I even heard a single song. Now they're one of my top 10 bands for sure....

This, plus the They Make Beer Commercials EP (probably second behind POI for me). Omni was tolerable, but Infinity did absolutely nothing for me and I never bought it.

It really boggles the mind. I guess it's a microcosm of why marketing trumps substance for almost every type of consumer product. As with everything in life, 90% of the population weighs 90% of their...

Up to 55 now, but I'm never going to touch that 189 shown above. I psych myself out too much when I start doing well, even for something as dumb as this.

Ad-free on Android here too. But I'm rooted with AdAway installed. I still get ads in some other apps, though.

Also, I think I'm uninstalling after Ozzie182's screencap. Played for half an hour...

This has to be so dependent on your device. Size, touchscreen quality/sensitivty, etc. I downloaded it 30 minutes ago and just got 22, and I generally suck at video games. Galaxy S3 here. What's...

Thanks for the recs. Had never heard of Glifted.

I have to say, though, that so far Shiner is by far my favorite of these groups. I haven't given TLAT enough time yet, but I'm finding their catalog...

Bump, just in the hopes it gets even one person to check out these bands (Shiner, The Life and Times).

I discovered Shiner about three weeks ago, and am left aghast. I've worshiped Oceansize for...

Don't think it has much to do with liberalism. More like power-hungry, self-important mods who pop a boner every time they see an opportunity to intervene and look important. I've seen them at every...

I wasn't referring so much to myself as the fanbase as a whole. It's just that you sort of implied their collective lack of enthusiasm for the later records (or desire to "repeat El Cielo") is part...
